I’ve always been a fan of Moscow Mules because they aren’t overly sweet and these strawberry Moscow Mules are an excellent spin on the classic. I recommend you use actual ginger beer (I use Bundaberg) instead of ginger ale as it is less sweet and has a stronger ginger flavour, but whatever you can get your hands on will work!

I don’t know about you but I think these might be on the cards for Christmas day and New Years Eve for me!

      You do whatever works for you lovely! This would be equally delicious without the vodka for sure! xx

    Oh wow, sounds great. Hubby has just started making Moscow Mules at home and we have the mugs, vodka and ginger beer packed ready to take away to the beach with us. I will have to show him this variation.

      Yum! I wish I had the mugs but I really don’t need anything else for my little kitchen so normal glasses will have to do!
